Dean's Position Description

January 26, 2012

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to share the attached position description we will use to name a new dean of the faculty/dean of the college and to invite you to nominate a colleague for this important position. My thanks go to many of you who shared your ideas and suggestions about this position. Your input helped to shape the description I am sharing and I hope you will be back in touch with nominations as the process moves along.

I am also pleased to let you know that the members of the FEC have agreed to consult with me as the process moves forward. If members of that body are nominated and wish to be considered, they will of course not be included in the consultations.

You can find the timeline for the search, the position description, and any future updates on my website at

Again, thanks to everyone who is helping to make this a strong and vibrant process. I hope to receive all nominations by February 15 and expect to name the new dean in March.

With warm regards,

Jill Tiefenthaler
